EU Seeks Chair for New Anti Money Laundering Authority with €290,000 Annual Salary

The EU has officially advertised for the position of chair of its new Anti Money Laundering Authority (AMLA), offering an annual salary of approximately €290,000. Candidates for this prestigious role must be proficient in two official EU languages and possess at least five years of high-level management experience.

The successful applicant will be appointed for an initial term of four years, with the possibility of a single renewal. The AMLA's headquarters will be located in Frankfurt, a decision confirmed earlier this year.


A notice published in the Official Journal of the European Union stated, “The [AMLA] Chair will be considered on par with a Member of the General Court. His/her salary will be based on grade AD 16, step 3, subject to a multiplication factor equal to 104% of the salary for that grade and step.”


As of 2023, European Commission staff at grade AD 16, step 3 earned a monthly salary of €23,261. The 104% multiplication factor results in an annual salary of approximately €290,000, which is mostly tax-free and includes additional allowances.

The notice outlined the position's requirements as follows:

- At least 15 years of postgraduate professional experience.

- At least five years of experience at a senior level in AMLA-related activities.

- At least five years of high-level management experience.

- A thorough knowledge of one official EU language and a satisfactory knowledge of another.


Interested candidates must register via an online portal, with the registration deadline set for 8 July 2024, at 12:00 noon Brussels time.


Several high-profile candidates are reportedly eyeing this prestigious position. Given Germany's success in securing Frankfurt as the agency's base, it is unlikely that a German national will be chosen for the top role. Instead, candidates from other shortlisted countries such as Spain, France, and Ireland are expected to come forward, sources indicated.
